Monzo IPO: how to buy Monzo shares

Pre-listing

Grey market

The value you’ll see on our select range of grey markets is a prediction of a company’s market cap at the end of its first day of trading. You can take a position on this market if it’s available for Monzo’s listing.

Trading and investing are different in many ways. When trading Wise shares with us, you’ll use spread bets or CFDs to speculate on share price movements. These let you take a position without having to own the underlying shares – so you can speculate on shares that are rising (known as going long) or falling (known as going short) in value. If your prediction is correct, you’ll make a profit, but if you’re wrong about the market movement, you’d take a loss.

Spread bets and CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to commit a deposit upfront – called margin – to receive full market exposure. But, bear in mind that while margin can increase your profits, it can also increase your losses.

When investing in shares with us, you’ll buy and own physical shares using a share dealing account. Leverage isn’t available when you’re share dealing – so you’ll need to commit the full value of your position upfront. Buying shares will make you a shareholder – eligible to receive dividends and voting rights – and you’ll profit if the share price increases above the price at which you opened your position. If you decide to sell your shares at a point when the share price has decreased below the price at which you opened your position, you’ll take a loss. However, your risk is capped at the price you paid for your shares (excluding additional fees).

How do IPOs work?

IPOs work by having a company list its shares to be bought and sold by market participants on the open market.

Some reasons for listing company shares on an exchange include raising capital for expansion, paying off debts, attracting and retaining talent or improving liquidity.

The company must start by arranging for a third party to conduct a comprehensive audit, which considers all aspects of its financials. Thereafter, it needs to get a registration statement ready to file with the relevant exchange commission. If the commission approves the registration, the company will list a specific number of shares on a stock exchange, at a price determined by an investment bank.

FAQs

All trading activity is risky – IPOs come with additional risks, including:

  • Missing important company information that might impact share prices, eg pending legal cases and intellectual property that is not patented
  • Little to no trading track record to base decisions on
  • Elevated market expectations that do not materialise
  • Companies not meeting their target market cap

Before committing to any trade, it is important that you have all the facts that you need. In the case of trading IPOs, you can use company prospectuses, admission documents and other information to stay up-to-date. By staying informed, you can avoid risks that could affect your position in a trade.
